Re: I got the buzzing but only when in gear (Jdubs)

I have the same problem but my car only buzzes about 3000rpm. It is the heat sheild, one of the bolts that anchors it to the exhaust manifold is broken so it vibrates at mid range rpms. I suspect it could buzz at idle if the portion of the shield were close enough to the manifold. It should be a quick fix though, any muffler shop can do the repair.
